Taipei, Sept. 25 (CNA) More than 2,000 pieces of counterfeit brand-name clothing and footwear have been seized at several markets in central Taiwan in police raids, police said Monday.

After conducting surveillance for several months, the police seized counterfeit products in Taichung and Yunlin relating to brands such as Nike, Adidas, Under Armour and Roots.

The goods would have a total value of NT$2 million (US$67,600) in retail stores if they were genuine, an officer said.

The counterfeits were seized from four vendors who had been selling them at traditional markets and night markets, which often attract large numbers of tourists, according to the police.
